Here's a good training hike to the site of a former fire lookout. You'll get a workout in heading through the tangle of salal, Oregon grape, and imposing rhododendrons. There's not much of a view from the top anymore, as it hasn't been used as a lookout in decades, but it's still worth a visit if you need a leg-stretcher or you're in the area.
